DEFINITIONS

1.3 DEFINITIONS

Auto Land System: the airborne system which provides automatic control of the airplane
during approach and landing.

Alert Height (AH): an alert height above the runway threshold based on the characteristics
of the airplane and its fail operational automatic landing system, above which a Category III
operation would be discontinued and missed approach initiated if a failure occurred in one
of the redundant parts of the automatic landing system, or in the relevant ground
equipment.

All-Weather Operations: any surface movement, Take-off, Departure, Approach or landing


operations in conditions where visual reference is limited by weather conditions.

Decision Altitude (DA/H): a specified altitude or height (A/H) in the precision approach at
which a missed approach must be initiated if required visual reference to continue the
approach has not been established.

• Decision Altitude (DA) is referenced to Mean Sea Level (MSL) and Decision Height
(DH) is referenced to the threshold elevation.

• The required visual reference means that section of the visual aids or of the
approach area which should have been in the view for sufficient time for the pilot to
have made an assessment of the aircraft, aircraft position and the rate of change of
the position in relation to the desired flight path.

Runway Visual Range (RVR): the range over which the pilot of an aircraft on the
centerline of the runway can see the runway surface marking or the lights delineating
runway or identifying its centerline.

Instrument Flight Rules (IFR): a set of rules governing the conduct of flight under
instrument meteorological conditions.

ILS CAT II/CAT III Operation:ILS CAT II/CAT III operations is precision approach and
landing/auto landing making use of specific alert height (AH), Decision Altitude / Height
(DA/H) AND Runway visual range.

ILS CATEGORIES: there are three categories of ILS which support similarly named
categories of operation:

• Category I (CAT I) Operation: a Precision Instrument Approach and Landing with


a Decision Height not lower than 60 m (200 ft) and with either a Visibility not less
than 800m or a Runway Visual Range not less than 550 m.

• Category II (CAT II) Operation: a Precision Instrument Approach and Landing


with a Decision Height lower than 60 m (200 ft) but not lower than 30 m (100 ft),
and a Runway Visual Range not less than 300 m.
